So I have this little computer I setup with Linux Mint. When I say little, I mean LITTLE. I have a USB hard drive that's a pretty large that I use to store all my music, videos, all things fun. What I would like to do (if it can be done) is this.
The computer sits in the corner turned on but not logged into any user.
I want to be able to have that drive plugged into the computer via USB and shared so that I can map it from not only my other linux computers but my *cough* windows computer as well. Can this be done?
Here's the next level. It runs an FTP server that I use to grab files off of it when I'm not home so that I can eventually use my phone to stream...ok don't worry about that. What I was wondering is if I when I log into the ftp server from outside, can I CD to the hard drive I have plugged in??
I dunno, seems reasonable enough to me.
